Hi guys, quick question
Will the final version be available on Mac?
No. DLLs can't be.
Does that mean that the final version won't be on Steam Workshop?
It could be. But Mac users can't use it, only PC can.
more specifically: macOS can't launch it, only windows can.
You would need to use Wine to emulate a windows environment in order to use DLLs (I recently did this for my wife for Stardew Valley so that she can use my mac laptop while I work on my PC!).
Does using Wine hurt performance?
Aren't modpacks mac compatible?
A little, but Aspyr's Civ 5 port is essentially an emulation, so its probably not a notable difference.
Not if they have DLLs.
I ended up setting up a Bootcamp partition for Windows 8 on my iMac (it's just old enough that Windows 10 isn't compatible) for the sole purpose of being able to try out this Mod. Took a little tweaking (had to lower some map and leader graphics settings as higher settings caused the game to CTD) but has been absolutely worth it, game runs fine and VP makes this the Civ experience I wanted it to be.
